The historic center of Altea
The historic center of Altea. It is located at the top of the town, drawing a postcard of one of the most beautiful you have ever seen. Getting there is almost like living a story in which you get lost in a maze of narrow, cobbled streets, steep and white discovering hidden corners (this is what the little ones love) full of charming restaurants and craft shops that will surprise you with their original products and the friendliness of their people. To get there, you can start from the Plaza del Convento, from which there are two paths: you can go up the Cuesta Pont de Moncau or the Costera del Mestre de la Música. Both roads are beautiful and hide culture and history of Altea. From the historic center you have the most spectacular panoramic views of the town of Altea. The old town of Altea is a meeting place with entertainment venues and restaurants with large terraces from which to enjoy a relaxed afternoon watching the movement of people going up and down. We also find in it the Church of Our Lady of Consuelo, a church whose two domes of blue and white glazed tiles stand out to give that Mediterranean touch to the town of Altea. Among the neighbors, the old town is known as “El fornet”. Altea is a trip to the past, to the typical Mediterranean architecture, if you have already decided to book among the great variety of hotels it houses, you can not miss at least one of these areas, although it is advisable to come for several days and enjoy all the possibilities offered by Altea.
